Foreign investment helped make Alberta prosperous OTTAWA (CP) - Alberta Premier Harry Strom said Thursday he believes Canadians are unduly concerned about the dangers of foreign ownership of domestic industries. The Social Credit premier said Alberta's present prosperity is due almost entirely to development fostered by foreign investment in the province. Interviewed on the CBC television program Encounter, Mr. Strom said he believes the next federal-provincial constitutional conference in Victoria in June will be crucial for Confederation. Unless the provinces and federal government could agree on an amending formula for the British North America Act and a minimum number of amendments, the constituional conferences should be discontinued. Mr. Strom said that those who believe the federal government should block a proposed sale of the Canadian-owned Home Oil Co. to U.S. interests should reconsider. Was it fair for a government APPOINTMENT to tell the owner of Home Oil that although he had found a good buyer for his firm the sale could not go ahead because of the buyer's nationality? He said he was not especially concerned about a possible U.S. takeover of Home.

At least six of the largest oil companies are using, or planning to use, computers for instant checks on credit card purchases over $15, they said. > leum said his company was forced to hire a costly computer-detective system because each stolen credit card has been costing at least $1,000 to $3,000. Ton: Allmand, Fina's assistant treasurer, said his company has had "some losses reach $6,000 to $7,000" from a single credit card in a crook's hands. The computer system is owned by National Communications and Data Corp., of Atlanta, Ga. It works like this: When someone wants to make a credit card purchase over $15, a clerk or service station attendant dials a number, which connects him with the central computer in Atlanta, and has the card checked within 30 seconds. THE COMPUTER KNOWS The computer indicates whether the card is valid ir stolen and at the same time provides a credit rating on the customer. If the card is stolen, the attendant is able to confiscate it and call police. The computer company also services Gulf Oil, Supertest, Home Oil, Imperial Oil.
